Modern Nairobi is still the safari capital of the Africa, but the modern world has quickly caught up with the city. A frontier town no more, Nairobi has become one of Africa's largest, and most interesting cities. The city has a boundless energy, and is a thriving place where all of human life can be found. This is a place of great contrasts where race, tribe and origin all become facets of a unique Nairobi character. The city has not lost its sense of the past, with an excellent museum and the historical home of Karen Blixen, author of Out of Africa, open to visitors.
Just outside the city is Nairobi National Park, 113 square kms of plains, cliffs and forest. The park is home to large herds of zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, giraffe and more. Rhino, cheetah, and a large number of lion are all found here, living wild within 20 minutes of the centre of town. Further out of town, the spectacular 27m deep 'Fourteen Falls' waterfalls at Thika are perfect for a scenic day trip. Nearby Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park, is centred around an imposing 2,146m mountain.
